I would like to say a very big "Thank You" for all the work you did with me. I did not realise that I was in such a "Dark Place" until we started The Programme.
I am feeling so much better now and I am looking forward to a brighter future Thanks to you.

I am so grateful that I took that "First Step" and made that appointment. You are such an amazing person and I would gladly recommend you to anyone in the future that may need your help.

Anxiety

When I first met Janet for my work/life anxiety issues, I immediately felt at ease because of her caring and warm nature. She has an almost instant ability to see/know where to deal/resolve any issues. On the very first session I was amazed to learn new things about myself (that have always been there, but not visible to me - on my blind side!).

With each visit came new learnings and light bulb moments. The gentle and compassionate approach, with her spectrum colour techniques take you back on your own life's journey to resolve/heal past memories or inner negative beliefs.

I can't recommend enough if you have anxiety issues to see Janet. It was the most incredible journey (and my very own). She will make you see life through a new vision and make you feel complete again.

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy

Thank you so much for helping me to stop smoking, over the past 20yrs i've tried every stop smoking aid as its become available to no avail.
After one session with you i not only stopped smoking i realised i had all i needed to do it, you awakened my willpower. With this i feel i have control of myself , l'm more confident in my ability to stay stopped,
To anyone that is thinking of using you for hypnosis i would say firstly "do it!", have an open mind because the sessions probably wont be what you expect, you'll be met with a very warm and relaxed welcome and any anxieties you may have about stopping smoking will soon quashed.
Thank you again janet you've made a huge difference

Stop Smoking Hypnotherapy

My stop smoking session with Janet was amazing. After one session I felt extremely calm and relaxed and since that day haven't touched a cigarette since. Janet's approach was very professional and thorough. I would recommend Janet's work to anyone who wants to give up smoking or would like any help in any other areas of their lives. she is a genuine practitioner with a unique skill set. Thank's again Janet.

Before seeing Janet i had been suffering with a host of difficulties that had been manifesting themselves for many years. Janet is hugely positive and encouraging, i was really impressed with how she responded if you wanted to focus on something different or explore something else that you are struggling with. Janet is very perceptive and in tune emotionally, when understanding clients and gets the best out of you. For anyone struggling with anxiety, depression etc. I would wholeheartedly recommend her.

NLP Therapy

Having never had any form of therapy before, I found the sessions I had incredibly enlightening and beneficial. As an actor I wish I'd had NLP therapy before as I was able to experience results immediately, in turn facilitating improved performance in a profession which demands an extreme positive core belief.

Hypnotherapy

I had contacted Janet in order for me to prepare mentally for running the London Marathon in April. I had 2 sessions of hypnotherapy. The first very much highlighted my need for enjoyment when running and also why I need to run. I visually saw the colour yellow and it was suggested that I should run in this colour and concentrate on “Optimum Health”. I found this immensely beneficial and instantly noticed a more positive attitude in my training runs.

The second session concentrated on Spectrum Therapy. I found this very intense and felt an initial resistance to it as I was worried what the effect would be having this kind of session a week prior to the race. However, I was quickly reassured that it would be beneficial as I was still confused as to why I was running. Indeed it did have a positive impact as it enabled me to connect to this question in a very profound way and in a way I had not anticipated.

When running the marathon I wore yellow and I felt incredibly light throughout the run. I very much noticed the crowds, enjoyed every moment and connected with my purpose for running which ultimately made it a truly memorable experience. I mentally, physically and spiritually felt strong and I feel that this is as a direct response to the work I did with Janet. Moreover I have felt pretty positive post marathon despite having sustained a foot injury.

Hypnotherapy - Pregnancy

I contacted Janet to work on the emotional challenges of a high stress and turbulent pregnancy. The sessions were kind, sensitive and enlightening which I believe is the perfect environment for mother and baby. This allowed me to settle and accept that there is no such thing as "normal" and the answers for my well being lie within me.

Just wanted to say thank you Janet as you gave me the courage and encouragement to move on in life and put my issues to rest so I could do that. I'm so pleased I did because my little world is filled with the most wonderful things because I have allowed them to come in.

Losing Mum

I lost my mum when I was five months pregnant and I was left with what ifs, guilt and anger. Janet was an excellent mentor and coach, helping me to navigate my way through my emotions, identify what was holding me back from fulfilling my potential and find a successful future for my family and myself.

Overcoming Anxiety and Depression

Plucking up the courage to make the initial call was difficult, but I'm very glad I did. A friend had recommended Janet and I was feeling completely overwhelmed by everything at that time.
Now that I am feeling so much better and back to my usual self, it makes me aware of how bad everything was - I found it so hard to talk to people and felt embarrassed that I was feeling so anxious when I had everything going for me. I couldn't understand why I felt the way I did - no horrific events in my past, a loving upbringing, a close family and good friends - but I was so unhappy.

I found Janet so easy to talk to, a very good listener and realised that you don't have to have had a catastrophic event in your past to feel anxious and down. It made me realise there is nothing to feel guilty or ashamed about being depressed and that people are very understanding when you talk to them about it.

I'm now in a good place, enthusiastic, confident, organised again and looking forward to seeing family and friends and doing all the fun things I did in the past.

Childhood Trauma

Before seeing Janet, I was experiencing bouts of depression and anger which all came to a head one evening and was affecting my relationship with my wife and my daughter.

Janet helped me work through the traumatic experiences that occurred in my childhood. I learnt to understand why certain things happened and how they affected me as an adult. Janet helped me see that the past won't change but "lets not allow the past to dictate the future".

Through Janet's work I haven’t had a mood swing for almost 3 months and feel like I am far more balanced in life.

Anxiety

Before I saw Janet I was suffering with anxiety and struggling to cope. I couldn't stop focusing on the negatives that were dragging up feelings of anxiety, and it was taking over my everyday life. After the first session with Janet I felt lifted and energised, I began to see things more clearly. After the second, I felt clear headed and had a sense of inner peace that I hadn't felt before. What then felt like big issues that were ruling my life have now dissolved and I have managed to let go of things that were holding me back. Janet is highly skilled in her work, she recognised things about me I never saw myself, and I have learnt a great deal from my time with her. She is someone that makes you feel at ease and highly professional too. I'm so glad I went to see her, I now have the spring back in my step!

Janet is a consummate professional who very quickly put me at ease when we first met. Trust and the ability to relate with your counsellor is key if the process is going to work and I immediately hit it off with Janet which made it easier to open up about the issues I needed to deal with.

In almost one year of weekly and bi-weekly sessions we met face-to-face and via Skype and Janet adjusted her methods accordingly. I spent several weeks in the USA during this period and Janet was very flexible in accommodating the time zone differences and ensuring our sessions continued…even in the middle of the Texas wilderness!

Janet helped me successfully work through a number of long standing and deep rooted issues which previous counsellors and NHS psychiatric professionals had only touched the surface of and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Janet is reliable, easy to talk to, and makes you feel at ease. She is very good at understanding problems (both evident and underlying) and finding methods to reduce them. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone that needs help.

Loss

From the moment I contacted Janet to discuss my needs she began to guide me through the process with utter clarity; what to expect, what she expected from me and most importantly the message that this was a process that we would do very much together. This approach instilled confidence that I would always be left in an emotionally ‘safe’ place.

Janet created a very open environment in which to work. Her intuitive skill at guiding the session ensured that no stones were left un-turned. Janet demonstrates a perfect mix of firmness and empathy. She allowed me, as the client, to reach my own conclusions with very little suggestion, but through signposting me through my own decision making.

On completion of my work with Janet, I feel that I have a great deal of clarity and that I can move on with my life without the emotional 'baggage' that I had collected over years of bereavement and loss. Most reassuringly, I know that Janet will be on hand via Skype, the telephone or face to face, if I feel that I need some support again in the future.

I have recommended her to a number of my friends and I shall continue to do so as I feel that her approach and skill are second to none.

Stress

After spending a day with me using Spectrum Therapy I feel as if a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I feel calmer and more able to cope with my present situation. The whole atmosphere at home is more relaxed, she also spent time talking to my husband. I wish I could keep Janet in a cupboard and have the therapy on a regular basis. Feel like a new woman. Thank you so much. Would recommend Janet and the therapy to anyone in my situation.

Anxiety/Panic Attacks

I have suffered from bad panic attacks for nearly 14 yrs and hearing and seeing the success Janet has made to people's lives thought I needed to give it a go as no other treatment I have tried has worked. I attended several sessions and resolved a lot of issues I have carried around with me for a very long time. With Janet's help I have been able to deal with them and finally feel closure on the bad stuff from my past. I now have a much clearer view on life and a better chance of moving forward and doing the things I want to do. Janet is a very caring and understanding person who makes you feel very safe and relaxed during your sessions. A big thank you Janet for all your help.

Anxiety/Depression

Since my father's death from cancer eight years ago and then my oldest daughter's psychotic depression a year later I found myself battling depression and anxiety. Things would settle for a while and then I would hit the bottom again. Medication was helping a bit but not enough. Christmas 2013 came and went as did my Grandson's 2nd birthday, I know that I was there but I felt absent from it all somehow. Work was becoming a daily struggle. I was having neck and shoulder problems caused by stress. A friend recommended I try an osteopath and while waiting for her one day I saw Janet's leaflets. It occurred to me that she might help me reduce the stress that was the underlying reason for the neck and shoulder pain.
Janet has done so much more. Although I was never able to visualise the colours I was able to access the feelings and this was not always easy and many times upsetting. Janet has helped me to understand things about myself and how 'I' tick. This has helped me to realise just how much I love Nursing and that I'm not ready yet to stop. She has also been able to teach me some skills to help with the anxiety that sometimes troubles me at work.
It's early days but Janet has also helped me to begin to improve my relationships with my husband and grown up children and also my work colleagues.
But over and above that she has helped me to come to terms with living with Epilepsy and to be aware of things that keep me safe but also not crippled by anxiety about my future.

Loss/Depression

I had been suffering with depression following the sudden losses of my Sister and Father, within two years of each other. I was taking antidepressants to ease my sadness which helped numb my feelings but did not actually treat the true cause of the depression. Everyday felt the same in my own little bubble, same routine, just going through the motions. Having also lost my Mother when she was 51 to cancer together with the recent bereavements I found myself questioning my own longevity to the point where I had difficulty visualising being here in the future for my husband and son.
I decided to seek Janet's help on the recommendation of my husband who had successfully completed a course of Spectrum and NLP (neurolinguistic programming) therapies with her, for his own work related anxiety issues.
I'm so pleased I did, Janet is the most lovely, friendly, kind, caring, attentive person. She was always professional and non judgemental throughout our sessions and constantly made me feel at ease. Everything discussed was confidential and Janet made me feel very relaxed. By using Spectrum Therapy and NLP techniques Janet helped me unravel my deep feelings of grief, sadness, helplessness, guilt, anger, fear, etc. She trained me to change my thought processes to allow 'the sun' back into my world.
Having completed my sessions I no longer need to take medication and I feel so much happier. I smile, laugh and joke more and my self belief has rocketed.
My love of singing has been revived and my inner confidence has enabled me to summon the courage to audition to join a local choir. I am so excited about this and feel full of enthusiasm for the future now.
Seeing Janet has turned my life around. She has shown me how to look at the positives rather than the negatives and the importance of concentrating on the happiness not the sadness.
I will never forget my lost, loved ones but until the day we meet again I am determined to enjoy my future as I know that is what they would want me to do.

Acute Anxiety & Depression

Having suffered for 7 months with acute anxiety & depression following trauma and having tried everything to get better from the traditional highly medicated route to anything snd everything alternative I stumbled on Spectrum. That first 4hours journey took a huge, 'leap of faith'. I don't know how I managed to get there. I had to travel the night before as I just couldn't get myself out of bed in the mornings. It was as if a huge invisible weight held me down. The light had gone out of my life. My youngest daughter was leaving home to go to uni in London. My work as Senior Floor/Stage Manager in T.V. had dried up and at age 57yrs I felt I had no future. I wanted to live but had lost my purpose in life
It was as if I had woken up in the middle of a nightmare. Suddenly all my drive and passion had gome. I had always been a firm believer in Alternative Medicine and although some therapies I came across did work none of them sustained & within a day or two I was ill again. Spectrum Therapy not only sustained but helped cure me in only 7 sessions! Since then I have qualified as a Spectrum Therapy Pactitioner. I've been on a Womens Retreat ito Normandy, France & am currently Stage Managing a new Musical.
As a result off Spectrum Therapy I now not only hve my life back but have a bright & shiny future ahead of me.
Janet was there at my side from the get go. Always encouraging me, always supportive and patient. I was never put under any pressure. I didn't even have to relate any of the traumas as I had previously been expected to do when seeing a new therapist and which meant re-living the terror. I felt completely at ease throughout the whole treatment. I was never judged. Janet was very flexible allowing me to be seen regularly at a time I most needed the back-up. She was also very supportive of my husband, Nick. She has restored my confidence & saved my marriage but more importantly she's given me back my Faith and Trust in life. I would highly recommend Spectrum therapy to anyone going through Anxiety and/or depression as a result of trauma or time of life i.e. Menopause. 'Empty Nest Syndrome'. I could so easily have been discarded, locked away on some Mentsl ward drugged up to the nines. Now I don't take any medication and have tons of energy, drive & enthusiasm.

Grief

I recently did a half day change programme with Janet following a bereavement. Her therapy techiniques are very gentle and non-intrusive, the wonderful thing about the way Janet works is you don't need to go into context if you don't want to. Spending even just half a day working with Janet has helped me to move forward and begin to manage my grief day to day.
